Default The Bratva Stout

Brewed this on December 14 of 2011. Kegged two weeks ago and just tapped.
The end result is a massive bomb of roasty, chocolaty, hoppy goodness at 19% abv. I dry hopped with a pound of Amarillo so I lost about a gallon, but 4 gallons of this stuff is going to last a while.
All in all it cost close to $250 but it is so worth it.
Here's to time and patients and the rewards that they bring

You brewed this beer in the future? Can I borrow your time machine?

Looks like a pretty intense beer. If I was willing to spend $250 on 4 gallons of beer, I might actually brew that. What made it cost so much? Did you have to buy a barrel to age it in or something?

Yea I'm curious on the cost also since I see no where near 250 bucks worth of ingredients

Come to think of it... I'm not sure why I priced it at 250. I was halfway through a snifter of it when I posted that
